Michel Therrien has decided to split up Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby. Both will be centering their own line and Matt Cooke makes a significant jump on the depth chart.
Fedotenko ‚Äì Crosby ‚Äì Dupuis
Cooke ‚Äì Malkin ‚Äì Sykora
Satan ‚Äì Staal ‚Äì Kennedy
Bissonette ‚Äì Zigomanis ‚Äì Godard
Max Talbot did not practice and according to a source the Penguins have internally discussed playing Talbot on left wing when he returns. Talbot did see some time last season on wing with Crosby and Malkin.
Crosby playing with Ruslan Fedotenko and Pascal Dupuis is not something the Penguins envisioned this summer
Matt Cooke has been rewarded and will play with Evgeni Malkin and Petr Sykora tomorrow night.
